It’s been a great month of getting back in to reading, and I have really enjoyed some of the books I picked up. Make sure to check the full list to get some more recommendations.
Favorite Books Read in September:
For the Love by Jen Hatmaker: I have been a big fan of Hatmaker for a long time and was eagerly anticipating the arrival of her new book. It was so very good – a great mix of Jesus, life, humor, and much more. An easy and quick read you won’t regret.
Life Intended by Kristin Hammel: Probably my favorite book from the month, I really enjoyed this story of moving on after you lose someone you love, but also how good life can be if you look beyond yourself. It made me think and contemplate my own life and where I am just allowing life to pass me by.
Hands Free Life by Rachel Macy Stafford: After reading Stafford’s first book Hands Free Mama, I was excited to check out her new release. The books are pretty similar, in the sense that they are encouraging the same idea. Even still, it was a great kick in the pants (again) and has made me rethink some big things I want to change in my life.
Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin: I have read a few books on habits and wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. I enjoyed her perspective about how your personality affects how you can make and keep habits. Easy reading; not overly research heavy, which was nice.
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey: After seeing this one explode on social media amongst some different blogs I follow, I was eager to give this one a go. I would classify it as futuristic, paranormal, and just plain creepy. It was suspenseful and very interesting; I can definitely see why so many people like it.
Other books read this month:
Scary Close by Donald Miller: I really enjoyed this book but wouldn’t say I that I absolutely loved it. But, still a good read on vulnerability.
Mr. Penumbras 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan: A fun read with a great magical quality to it. Enjoyable for sure.
